Gardening

May 17, 1861 Hannah Walton Sanders wrote in her diary

A very good day. I came home this morning and did some gardening.

I had a very good day also; sun shined and it was quite warm, but windy. I spent evening with CWD block number 36. I paper pieced it. The pieces in the middle part of the block are SOOO TINY. And it felt like an eternity sewing it...

A very warm day. All gone to General Muster. I am still gardening. Cousin A.B. Walton here for dinner. No one here but Ellen and myself tonight.
Finally... four pieces left...

My fabrics are Sturbridge Village Miniatures I by Judie Rothermel (brown), Bonnie Blue Basics by Paula Barnes (red), Itsy Bits by Renee Nanneman (green), Mary Rose Coll. from Quilt Gate (very light green)

A cloudy morning. A rain blew in the West. Had showers all day. Planted cucumbers and tomatoes out in the evening.
Now I close the CWD book... and I'll open it again on the third of June. I found easier, but noble block... at page 187:)

HMM.. Where is my Dear Jane book...???

You are going to have a wonderful memory log of your project. I am enjoying following along.

Great job on the blocks but I would like to see your finished toiletries bag and the pincushion that is listed in your finished projects for 2009.

Another gorgeous block! Well done on all those tiny pieces!
